    So after having one too many cocktails last Saturday, I some how lost the battery to my Droid 1. I go to my VZW dealer (independent) and buy what they have for the Droid. Some after market "OFFWIRE" brand.

    I take it home, let it charge. It's working A-OK! It charges fine and what not.

    So tonight, I completely drain my battery for the first time since I had this new battery. It dies like expected. So I go to charge it, starts up fine, gets to the slide-lock screen and....goes back to the white "M" upon boot. Goes through it again and same thing. Stays on the lock screen for about 30 seconds before looping.

    Then I tried plugging my phone in on the charger without the battery in it That's not working either. Does the same thing with the loop

    I've used 3 different chargers (1 car charger, 2 micro-usb)

    What can be going on here? Is it the phone? Is it the after market battery?

    Now my phone is rooted. I have a custom boot animation and everything. I'm afraid if I take this battery in, they'll see my Droid is rooted when testing it and will void my warranty.

    I've NEVER had an issue with this before with my old battery and I find it odd that it's starting now which pretty much pits it on the battery.

    What should I do when I take it to my retailer?

    Is there anyway I can fix it manually?

    I would take it back for an exchange and say it doesn't work or say it wont hold a charge. Because that honestly doesn't sound right.. And just take the battery, leave the phone at home, they wont want to test your phone. And plus it hasn't been thirty days so you can return it as long as hu have your reciept.

    +1! Plus, if you have Launcher Pro, you could just hide the root apps..in case they want to be difficult. I'm about 95% sure its the off brand battery!

    Sadly, I no longer have the receipt nor do I not have the box since I told them to keep it.

    Good thing is it only cost $15 with my protection plan.

    Worst case scenario, I buy a new, Motorola brand battery via the net and pay another $15 for a new after market at that joint then return it (keeping the receipt) when I get my new Motorola battery via mail.

    So at least I'll have something until I get the good battery since I need my phone for work-related reasons.

    Or maybe I'll just tell them to give me a Droid 2 battery (if it's stock) since those work in the Droid 1 also.

    Hopefully it's the battery not the phone since it does the same loop when the battery isn't even in it and it's just on the charger.

    Yeah anything you buy for your phone, especially off brand, keep your receipt! Because we can't help you if you don't have one :p
